For Whom The Saved By The Bell Tolls [robots]
About This Episode
Robot Week continues with TV day!
Whether it’s KITT, Rosie, Bender, or the Transformers, there's no shortage of fine examples of robots on the idiot box...but we chose none of those and instead we phone this episode in with the most ridiculous robot in any medium...
1 - Zoinks! It's F'ing Kevin from 'Saved by the Bell' folks... (What were we thinking?)
I'm guessing Screech didn't win the Nobel Prize for this masterpiece in robotic engineering because, clearly, it's a complete rip-off of Johnny 5 from 'Short Circuit. But I digress...
2 - 'Saved By The Bell' is on Netflix and if you feel the need to see Kevin in action (or more accurately, trying to get Screech some action), watch Season 1, Episode 10: "Beauty and the Screech". You'll be changed for the better...
3 - Tiffani Amber Thiessen was never in 'Baywatch'. Josh was wrong and it won't be the last time.
4 - Knight Rider 2000 (not 3000) was filmed in San Antonio. I told you Josh would be wrong again. Just didn't think it would be so soon. Maybe the best scene from Knight Rider 2000 will make up for it? It has James Doohan in it. As himself. Seriously. youtu.be/j_hTfu3h1y0
5 - Now Let's cleanse the palette. If you feel the need to dive deeper in the wonderful world of TV robots, Gawker.com has a great piece on the Icons of the small screen. Enjoy...goo.gl/Qj0YtC
